Made the Bahamas

I’m guilty!!!!

Totally hooked on both CS’ta Time & Serenada’s blogs. It is extremely interesting how each boat approaches their reporting of experiences during the journey. It doesn’t matter whether they are sailing together or apart, both writings create an amazing picture but together, it paints a vivid picture of the lifestyle. For me, it is a little like the TV series “24”; as all the aspects inter twine and how they can be so close at times and yet far enough to miss each other.

I digress but this is one of those moments..

Both boats are in the Bahamas and they missed each other by hours. If you recall, Serenada had made the crossing almost a week ago and was lying in Bimini. Saturday they decided to slip at 10am with a group of other boats (pointed towards the Exumas) to take advantage of the good weather. Guess what? The weather window was so good, CS’ta Time decided to make the jump from Miami and landed in Bimini on Sunday around 9am. They missed each other by just 11 hours!

You can read CS’ta Time’s crossing here:

CS’ta Time OdysseyWe went to bed last night at 2030 and had the alarm set for 2300. I slept off and on. Jorge didn’t. We readied the boat for the crossing, putting away things that had shaken loose earlier in the day, doned the personal beacons, lift jackets and tethering harness.

Serenada’s last report towards the Exuma’s is here:

Gil Duquette & Diana Ruhe on SERENADAI have some catching up to do, for although we’re ‘connected’ when we’re within range of Batelco towers, I’ve discovered that the speed of their service is on island time too, mon.Photo downloads? uploads? take forevveeerrrr, so I’ll likely be cutting back on those Anyway, from where we last left off…..
